Research Your Roots

Many of our visitors are searching for their ancestors, and we have many resources to assist with that process. Nova Scotia’s genealogy is deep and diverse. As well as our native Mi'kmaq ancestry, Nova Scotia's founding cultures include Acadian, English, German, African Nova Scotian, Scottish, Irish, and yes, even Americans. Twenty-five million people in North America can trace their families back to Nova Scotia during the past 400 years. Are you one of them?
